Haaretz selectively translated The New York Times' widely criticized feature on dozens of children killed during fighting between Hamas and Israel. Out of the 68 children that The Times covered, Haaretz deleted just two. They happened to be the two Israeli children.
Haaretz has falsely charged that the Israeli-Palestinian violence started due to "a disrespectful attack at the Al-Aqsa Mosque." Ignoring the evidence, many other media outlets around the world have echoed this. In fact, the chain of events indicates not only that the violence was a pre-planned Hamas initiative, but also that it was instigated despite a series of steps that the Israeli government took to calm things down, steps that had a heavy political and public cost in Israel.
Yehudit Karp, a former deputy attorney general of Israel, is no doubt well aware of the numerous cases in which Israel's High Court ruled in favor of Palestinian rights. Why, then, does she dismiss this meaningful record of on-the-ground impact as window-dressing?
Haaretz advocates for the immediate release of Palestinian hunger striker Maher Akhras striker, discounting Israel's information that he is an Islamic Jihad member and ignoring the fact that the terror organization itself has identified him as a "commander."
Haaretz's Jack Khoury falsely claims that in the last decade Hamas has accepted the two state solution, to be achieved by nonviolent means. Contrary to his report, the joint Hamas-Fatah press conference isn't an indication of the terror group's moderation; rather it's a sign of Fatah's embrace of violence.
Haaretz's opinion editors gave a pass to Odeh Bisharat's odious falsehoods which undermine Israel's legitimacy, including the fabrication that Arabs owned "most of the territory" of Palestine, and that Ben-Gurion's territorial greed supposedly caused the 1948 war.
For Israel's Memorial Day, Haaretz's Gideon Levy offers life support to the thoroughly expired Tantura "massacre" fallacy, insisting on a cover up of the "contentious version" whereby Haganah soldiers allegedly carried out a war crime.
CAMERA prompts correction after Gideon Levy's article falsely claimed that the parents of a young cancer patient from from the Gaza Strip were denied permission to be by the side of their dying daughter in a Nablus hospital.
Haaretz erases the United Nations' distinction between the unique mandate for Palestinian refugees, which includes their descendants for perpetuity, versus refugees from the rest of the world, who don't pass on their refugee status, and falsely reports that 5.5 million Palestinians "fled their native lands."
Defending Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn in face of widespread criticism of antisemitism under his leadership, Haaretz's Gideon Levy himself peddles age old tropes which fall under the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance working definition of antisemitism.
